Now available: Eduardo Carrillo Museum
Born in 1937 in Los Angeles, California, Eduardo Carrillo was a pivotal figure in the Los Angeles Chicano Art Movement of the 1960s and 1970s. Carrillo’s paintings often refer to history, religion, and mythology. His still lifes, landscapes, and empty rooms from the early 1960s show the influence of the Spanish masters, imbued with magic realism. In the 1970s, social themes and the human figure became central to his work, which increasingly included murals.
The Museo Eduardo Carrillo was founded to extend the artist’s work into the world through exhibitions, Web presence, and publications.
